I’m a big fan of betting sites, but how did this come about? I remember I was a kid and I used to watch my father and his friends huddle around the television much like we did as kids playing football making plans as to how we’re going to score our touchdown. My father drew a sort of excitement from sports I honestly found difficult to replicate in my later years. That excitement would fill the halls with a sort of joy and excitement I haven’t heard in a while. I first came across sports betting when I was in my late teens with my friends, betting against our favorite team’s rivals.
I was a huge fan also of specific rivalries in the sport’s world: Mayweather vs Pacquiao, Redskins vs the Cowboys, Russia vs the United States (Olympics). These are my favorite bets to make. I’m not also afraid to admit, but I’ll bet on little league teams against parents also. These are easy bets, because what parent would vote against their child? Even when he’s clearly on the losing team (just a bit of light humor)! It was becoming increasingly difficult for me to wage bets in 2008 as the market came down and less people showed up to my favorite bars.
During the drought of about 2 or 3 years of me not betting I wasn’t looking at sports much. Sure, I’d look at the teams, players and coaches, I’d read about them, but I wasn’t a huge fan of watching sports. I could never derive the pure love and joy that my father had for them. Eventually, though, I discovered online betting sites. I was a bet apprehensive since many of these sites are not hosted in the United States, but after betting a small sum I found these sites to be just as reliable if not safer than betting with your friends in real life. Betting sites have reinvigorated my love of gambling.
